Before I set off on my around the world trip back in early February I had registered with United Airlines frequent flyer 'MileagePlus' programme and had finally broken the magical 25,000 mile barrier giving me MileagePlus Premier Silver Status. This meant my seat for my final flight home to London was automatically upgraded from Economy to Economy Plus, very welcome as it meant I got on the plane first and had a slightly wider seat with more leg room.
My new MileagePlus Premier Silver membership card arrived soon after I got home and amusingly this was the only flight United Airlines asked me for feedback on. I guess they could have anticipated how bad my feedback would have been based on my previous flights with them!
